Robert McCartney was murdered by members of Sinn Fein/IRA recently, and his sisters will be spending St. Patrick’s Day with President Bush. The Telegraph reports that the McCartney sisters have been threatened by Sinn Fein/IRA:
The sisters of murdered Robert McCartney are on their way to the US for a St Patrick’s Day meeting with the president amid threats from Sinn Fein to keep out of politics.
The family and the partner of Mr McCartney fly to America for talks with George W Bush the day after Sinn Fein warned them not to enter politics.
Two Sinn Fein/IRA members are known to have been in the pub at the time of the killing, and neither has come forward with evidence, and now they’re telling the sisters to shut up. Isn’t that odd?
Immediately, Sinn Fein/IRA has tried to spin their threats as something else, but their statement was very clear: they told the sisters not to “cross the line into politics” with their grievance; I heard their man Martin McGuinness say this much on NPR.
We have RICO laws in the US to enable the authorities to deal with intimidation by mafia chieftains of the sort we’re seeing here. Why can’t the Brits simply take these reprehensible scum into custody and hang them like the dogs they are? (After a fair trial, of course.)
